    Actually Ford should use an efficient diesel like most of Europe for small cars. Great mileage and torque. The electric kick is cute especially when most electricity comes from some fossil fuel base and Bidet is killing them.

    Clown world~ " Given that the COVID-19 virus originated in Wuhan, China, and the precedent of using place of origin within the names of viruses, it would only make sense that we would use the term “China virus” to describe COVID-19. Not Anymore, you racist! The latest of Joe Biden’s THIRTY SEVEN executive orders signed in the first week of his presidency states that the term ‘Chinese virus’ or ‘China virus’ is now banned."

    Too bad the union staff that endorsed the idiot that caused it are not out of a job as well. " More than 190,000 miles of liquid petroleum pipelines traverse the United States. They connect producing areas to refineries and chemical plants while delivering the products American consumers and businesses need. Pipelines are safe, efficient and, because most are buried, largely unseen. " (Moving a liquid thru a pipe is safer , cleaner and cheaper than using truck or rail.)

    " Labor unions that endorsed Joe Biden are lashing out after he revoked the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The United Association of Union Plumbers, which backed the Democrat president, released a statement over the weekend which said, “sadly the Biden administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work.”"

    Remember the unions that endorsed Bidet................... Then~ "“We’re not going to sit on the sidelines at the UA. This endorsement is about putting UA members to work and fighting for fair wages and good benefits. Under a Biden Administration, that’s exactly what we’ll get,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association. “Let’s be real: nobody in the Oval Office will be with us on every single issue. But with his long history of standing shoulder to shoulder with working families and his commitment to an all-of-the-above energy approach that will mean more UA jobs, protecting the hard-earned retirements of our members, and appointing union-friendly judges, Joe Biden will be a fierce ally to our UA Brothers and Sisters in the White House.” Today~ Monday, January 18, 2021 The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) issued the following statement today following the news that the Biden-Harris Administration plans to rescind the permit and effectively end construction on the Keystone XL pipeline: “In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1. Let me be very clear: When built with union labor by the men and women of the United Association, pipelines like Keystone XL remain the safest and most efficient modes of energy transportation in the world. Sadly, the Biden Administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association.

    If Bidet kills the XL pipeline the one plus is the engineers union supported Joe Bidet and many of them will be out of jobs. The UAW supported Bidet ( as every democrat) so when gas prices go back to $4 a gallon watch the truck and SUV markets tank, again. A Bidet presidency is like watching the launch of the Titanic or Hindenburg , sit back and wait for it.............

    Ford Vaccine Survey?

    Pass. When something has a +96 % survival rate I do not need their shot. On the upside the bathrooms have been cleaner.
